  • BVB sign Tashreeq Matthews

Borussia Dortmund have officially signed Tashreeq Matthews which had been rumored for a few months now. The South African offensive midfielder recently played for Ajax Cape Town and will now play for BVB’s youth teams before hopefully breaking into the main squad. He joined BVB’s U19 on their trip to Madrid and will possibly already play his first game for BVB in the UEFA Youth League against Atletico.

  • Champions League fixtures

The Champions League resumes today with some pretty good matches. Atletico vs BVB will obviously be the highlight from a Dortmund fan’s perspective, the black and yellows could not only clinch their spot in the knockout rounds but also a first place finish in the group with win.

Inter taking on Barcelona and Tottenham hosting PSV are two other very interesting games. For the Spurs and PSV everything is on the line with both clubs having only 1 point each after the first three games.

PSG also find themselves in a must-win scenario on matchday 4 already. If they lose to Napoli and Liverpool take three points against Belgrade which has to be expected, then Thomas Tuchel’s team would be in a dire situation to even get out of the group.

Daily Buzz: It’s a bit of an odd situation for BVB, they can clinch a first place finish with a win but they also have the very important match against Bayern on Saturday. Should Favre rotate and risk losing this game or should he start the best possible eleven?
